Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.
Bayside Summers #1
Releasing May 9, 2017
World Literary Press
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.
Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.
Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

What a total swoon-fest!!! This book totally made my heart melt and left me with a huge smile on my face!!
Bayside Desires is the first in Melissa Foster’s Bayside Summers series. It was a wonderful, easy and sexy beach read. If you want to get lost in a happy world, then this is the book to read. It was a fairly quick, lighthearted read, with very little (almost no drama) filled read. Even though this book isn’t filled with a lot of drama, the storyline was interesting enough to keep my attention all the way through. I absolutely loved these characters and wanted to stay in their world as long as I possibly could.
This story focuses on Desiree and Rick. Desiree is a pre-school teacher in Virginia and is summoned by her estranged mother to come back to the Cape, being lead to believe that her mother’s health is failing. So of course Desiree goes to her, only to find out her mother isn’t sick and is leaving her to run her mother’s gallery and shop. Oh and it’s with the help of her long lost sister Violet. To say Desiree is mad was an understatement. But because Desiree is a kind and loving soul and wants to get to know her sister, she decides to stay. It also doesn’t hurt that there is a very sexy jet skier she is attracted to. Rick is only in the Cape to help his brother Drake and his friend Dean renovate their resort that they co-own, once that is over he is heading back to DC to the business he runs their with two other friends. What he doesn’t know is how a mysterious woman he met months ago, could really change his life. Rick sees a woman when he is jet skiing and is instantly attracted to her. What happens when a pool hopping dog brings these two together??? Will they be able to get past all their personal demons to find happiness again?? Can it be with each other?? Read this book to find out.
Bayside Desires is a standalone novel that is told in Dual POV in the third person. I am not normally a huge fan of the third person POV, but Melissa writes it in such a way that you can’t help but get sucked into the story and feel what these characters are feeling. I absolutely love her writing style.
I would 100% recommend this book to anyone who loves a swoony Hero who will melt your panties and your heart. This is a perfect beach/pool side book to read on that lazy day in the sun.
